Krupskaya, 1999


Poetry. Elizabeth Fodaski’s FRACAS grabs attention, then holds, examines, and explodes the attention it attracts. This work is both elegant and playful, sardonic and amused. A din, a brawl, a noisy quarrel. It instructs, implores, and navigates a level of writerly inquiry that’s a joy to encounter … FRACAS rocks —Jessica Grim.

Liz’s poems are very raw. They are the impulse to speak. —Eileen Myles.
